Don't Worry, Be Happy

July 9, 2023

“You were precious in My sight… and I have loved you.  Fear not, for I am with you.”  Why do we worry so much ?  Why are our eyes so little, that we cannot see beyond our presence.  Christ’s kingdom will never be conquered !  This world is temporary, the happiest happiness we’ll live up there, and though the enemy try to intimidate us, using his power over nature, provoking discord among us, harming us, straining us, sending tragedy and heartbreak… we are guarded by Omnipotence, and therefore always safe (C. Spurgeon).  There is no love like Christ’s.  Open your Bible and your eyes and join us now !

From Stress to Joy
When stress feels overwhelming, it can seem like there's no relief in sight. But there is a natural, easy-to-follow program proven to reduce your anxiety and give you more peace of mind. Use the three simple steps in this guide to overcome crushing stress.


Some of us move to keep things whole.  Some of us walk and it seems the air just moves in to fill the spaces where we've been (M. Strand).  Some of us drift in ignorance or freeze in fear, yet we must all walk on trustingly, remembering His footsteps have already pressed down the briers (CS, 151).  Tune in as we discuss fear and the future life, lawlessness and guns, and death decrees and prophecy.  “In the Bible we find our peace, our strength, our hope, our happiness," (C.H.S.).  Join us now in study and prayer.

You must carry the cross before you wear the crown and learn to leave the time of the blessing in the hands of God (C.H.S.).  But it's extremely difficult- it truly, truly is... to learn to trust the Lord, to let the Lord build faith during the waiting, to wait quietly, to quietly bear the trials, to regard the trials as saving lessons... Join us as we explore these topics and much more.  The end is not yet, but when it comes it shall be everlasting joy.  Don’t let go !  The best is yet to come.

One of the noblest features of a Christian is the readiness to forgive and the cheerfulness in recompensing good for evil, (C.H.S.).  In the simplest essence, it is a reflection of Christ and His grace, a reflection of the goodness and sacrifice that quietly and lovingly convict.  Join us now to learn about surrendering to Christ to overcome, about growing our faith through trial, and about handling hatred from others.  To triumph in grace is a difficult thing, but while holding His hand we can accomplish any thing.

We went about it all wrong, on our own, not consulting God.  We put ourselves in front when our own desires we should have placed behind.  Now what ?  "The Lord is more willing to give His Holy Spirit to those who serve Him than parents are to give good gifts to their children," (AA, 50).  Although we've rejected God's best, by the influence of the Holy Spirit our backsliding can be reversed.  Study with us now as we ask in prayer for His assistance and "avail ourselves of all the help and light that God has given" in order to understand this precious Everlasting Gospel (CH, 506), and in order to then share and speak truth with the heavenly oil of love that our words of reproof may be spoken in love (COL, 337), no matter the consequences.

Is it that the heart is closed and dead, coffined, and a phantom...  If you don't know what to do when you're lost and weak, if you can't forgive yourself, if you don't know how to repent or how to fight Satan back, don't despair.  “Tell him to recollect his bruised head, which he tries to cover with a crown of pride,” (C.H. Spurgeon), remind him that he is fighting a lost battle, and study with us about God's mercies and new beginnings.  There is purpose.  There is Light in everything, keep moving.

“Mold me, fashion me, raise me into a pure and holy atmosphere,” (COL, 159).  The earthly sanctuary was but just a hint, a shadow of the Heavenly, barely a glimpse of the true grandness and immensity.  And us, if we could be a shadow of Christ, miniatures and models of Him, letting Him be our example, what could be achieved ?  Perhaps our families could witness His character through us, perhaps those that wonder why bad things happen to good people could understand faith through us, and that despite what they see our God is in control.  Perhaps change could come through our hearts, through us – a consuming conversion and defeat of self, to be more like Him and bring into our character the fragrance of His, (Lt 47a, 19).  Let us behold Him to become like Him.  Join us to learn more.

Each day we must do battle with evil.  "Old habits, hereditary tendencies, will strive for the mastery... we must maintain a constant battle with self," (AA, 476; 565).  It must be our constancy : fight your self, fight the flesh.  Though sin is tearing us apart in this inward battle between God's will and our selfishness, tearing us away from God's image and embrace, if we have even the smallest confidence that He is our personal Savior, if we seek Him and share Him, we can run up that mountain of sin with Christ's strength victorious !

Regret is an ugly thing.  When salvation He's made free, when His love He's made free, when freedom is a just a decision away... why wouldn't you take it ?  Our hearts are stone and wicked and deceitful, we are in the dark.  But even so the Lord gives us choice.  We can choose to take His seal and want His will, we can choose to forgive and be forgiven, we can choose to have Heaven forever.  Right will lead to Light.  Tune in now and find out more.

“There is a science of Christianity to be mastered – a science as much deeper, broader, higher than any human science as the heavens are higher than the earth,” (MH, 453).  This is a science of unlearning to relearn, of suffering to be strong, of bearing the cross to win the crown, (AA, 467).  It’s a science of going deeper in our Father and of falling deeply in love with Him, of demonstrating faith in the life because of love, demonstrating His forgiveness and mercy toward us because of love. Maybe, just maybe then, we can hasten His glorious return… Join us now to learn more !

How much longer can we remain in Satan's spell ?  We've learned to lose ourselves, allowing pain and sin to attach like a lifeline.  And our human insignificance, our powerlessness and deficiency... we are so small and unable, sinners to the full extent.  We need Christ, and He will help us if we let go - leave alone and behind what's preventing us from life with Him, from going to the next level with Him.  Listen in now and learn that your salvation is through Christ only, not through what you do or don't do.  You just have to want it, and He will do the rest.

About Doug Batchelor

As the teenage son of a millionaire father and a show business mother, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy - everything but happiness. He used drugs, fought at school, and entertained suicidal thoughts. Convinced that life held no purpose, Doug was determined to grab all the fun and excitement he could find! Before his search ended, a cave in the hills above Palm Springs, California, became his home.

Even though he had access to money, and famous and powerful people, Doug would eventually scavenge for food in garbage bins. The happiness Doug wanted eluded him until the day he began reading the dust-covered Bible "Someone" had left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle!
